I have been updating the the G (England) ARM with the latest changes on the Hills-Database. This ARM hasn’t been uploaded to the SOTA Website yet, but I suspect that it will be soon. This ARM is dated 2nd March 2021 which is SOTA’s 19th Birthday. The Database should be updated with these changes at some point between now and 31st August.
As most of you know the main change is that due to a recent RHB survey, Cheriton Hill G/SE-015 is no longer a Marilyn and after 31st August will no longer be a SOTA summit. Here’s a list of other changes also.
Bardon Hill G/CE-004 - Height, grid reference and prominence changed.
Wendover Woods G/CE-005 - Height and grid reference changed.
High Willhays G/DC-001 - Height changed.
Skiddaw G/LD-004 - Height and prominence changed.
Pillar G/LD-006 - Height and prominence changed.
Watch Hill G/LD-054 - Height and prominence changed.
Burnhope Seat G/NP-003 - Height and prominence changed.
Dodd Fell Hill G/NP-016 - Grid reference changed.
Birks Fell G/NP-031 - Height and prominence changed.
Wilmington Hill G/SE-011 - Prominence changed.
Detling Hill G/SE-013 - Height, grid reference and prominence changed.
Cliffe Hill G/SE-014 - Height changed. Interestingly for this summit, the prominence on Hills-Database is now 149.8m so in theory would no longer be a Marilyn and therefore no longer a SOTA summit. However due to potential marginal error at the col, the RHB have left this summit as a Marilyn for the time being so this summit for now will be kept in the SOTA programme. To save any confusion I have left the prominence in the ARM as 150m. This summit is one that I will need to keep an eye on because I think it is likely that the RHB could at some point do a more accurate survey at this summit and col which could possibly mean this summit no longer being a Marilyn and therefore would have to be removed from the SOTA programme at a later date.
G/SP-014 - Summit name has been amended from Longridge Fell to Longridge Fell - Spire Hill.
Bishop Wilton Wold G/TW-004 - Height changed.
